Memo Board Refashion

This is the first project from the laundry room redo that I am going to show you. When I was cleaning out the laundry room I found this memo board and decided to dress it up to match the room.
Supplies:
Fabric
Ribbon
Hot Glue
Staple Gun
Step one: Take buttons off the memo board- mine were just glued on.

Step Two: Measure fabric and trim the fabric to fit the board.

Step Three: Staple fabric around board, pulling tight.

Step Four: Measure ribbon lengths and cut.

Step Five: Staple fabric onto the back of the board, stretch across the front of the board and staple on the other side.

Step Six: Staple where the ribbons meet.

Step Seven: Cut out fabric squares slightly larger than the buttons. Uncover buttons.

Step Eight: Place a drop of glue on the front of the button.

Step Nine: Press fabric to button.

Step Ten: Trim fabric.

Step Eleven: Place a drop of hot glue on back of button and press fabric into middle.
Step Twelve: Glue buttons onto front of memo board.

Linking to these parties!
